As completely self taught knitter and crocheter, I found that I do some things in a different way than standard techniques, but most comfy and easier for me. I still receive pretty often emails with how-to-questions and planned set up a tips category since so long… and it’s finally here! You may already be familiar with some of these tricks and sure I may not be the first to employ or invest these techniques, but I will be glad if you find something new and useful here. And hear “Why didn’t I think of that?!” – even from experienced knitters and crocheters, is always a highest award for me. So, let’s go…

    I will definitely try that next time, thanks Alla! My issue with crocheting is always having to switch everything around, since I am a lefty, LOL! But my mom taught me the basics and she was a “righty”.
